At the Actor's Studio of Orange County, students study Seven Pillars Acting, the latest movement in film/tv acting training, created and authored by studio’s owner, Sonya Cooke. In this class, students will learn how to be fully present and open when acting on camera, how to act authentically and spontaneously, and ultimately how to emotionally connect to the character's story. Over the course of 10 weeks, students focus on a new pillar, or fundamental acting tool, each month: Contact, Circumstance, Meaning, and Emotional Life. By the end of the course, students will know what it means to live truthfully as the character.
This is an exclusive opportunity to study a cutting-edge technique that originated at the Actor's Studio of Orange County and is taught in academic institutions across the country. Get to know the revolutionary technique that is launching actors' careers!
Seven Pillars Acting by Sonya Cooke is required of all students taking this course. Purchase the book online.
As always, there are no returns or transfers. Tuition reserves your spot in class; all classes fill up, so this is the only way to confirm your spot. Tuition is non-refundable nor transferrable, as class is a commitment to yourself, your scene partner, your instructor and the collective.
PAYMENT INSTALLATION POLICY
If an installment is purchased, a Recurring Authorization Payment Form will be part of the in person paperwork we will need completed. If you sign up over the phone, the form will be sent to you. Complete the form and turn it in before class starts. Without the form, you will not be officially registered in the class and will not be allowed to start your training until you have done so. A $1 charge will be made in order to ensure method of payment is valid. The value will be returned back to the card after the payment goes through. The last payment will be deducted July 31st & August 31st.
By opting for Installment Plans, you are making a commitment to pay them as scheduled regardless of absences or attrition; it is a legally binding contract. If such a commitment cannot be made, we recommend paying for the course in full or not enrolling.
All health related absences will be excused, with or without a doctors note. Our nonrefundable tuition policy will stand; however, if you are unable to complete the course due to illness, we are willing to transfer tuition to another class in the following semester. If you are concerned about attending class in person, we will offer online attendance (via video call.) *This attendance policy is temporary, going into effect for the remainder of the Winter 2020 semester, as well as the start of Spring 2020 semester. This policy is subject to change.
MAKE-UP CLASS POLICY
Excused absences may be made up by attending another similar class within 3 months of the absence. No other make-up arrangements or discounts will be offered.
